A fire destroyed a house on the 9100 block of Whithers Lane just before 2 a.m. this morning. 

Neighbors called the fire department after they heard the alarms going off.

The owners of the home have been in Florida for the past four weeks. Officials say it looks like the family winterized the home before going. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Estimation of damage is not yet determined.

FOX19 has a crew on the scene. We will continue to update the story as more information becomes available.
